1. ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY
4th September 476
END OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE
Gothic leader Odoacer captured Ravenna, the Roman capital since 402, and deposed the last Roman emperor, Romulus Augustus. Proclaiming himself king of Italy rather than emperor, the Roman Empire ceased to exist. However, the Eastern Roman Empire, aka the Byzantine Empire, with its capital at Constantinople (Istanbul) remained intact until 1453.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Blisters, though not fully healed, are considerably improved, but I can't wait for them to heal entirely before I start walking again, so I will heavily pad them and see how they stand up to today's hike to work.
My main focus is MIND, both controlling my own and practising my influential skills. I'm fully aware of not having a lot of crowd-pulling charisma, and I don't actually want that, but I do want to have strong one-to-one skills. As much as I wish to be rid of the Weekend Job, while I'm doing it, it is an ideal opportunity both for exercise and to see how much influence I can wield in many short encounters.
I am however unlikely to turn into some all-powerful master-controller because I have too many "raw nerves", so much of my calming skills have to be diverted into calming ME.

Everything passes. Both soaring joys and crushing sorrows fade away like a dream. However, the knowledge of having lived one’s life to the fullest never disappears.
